    GMC Jimmy Z71

    I'll give it a go. The Z71 that should have been. Specifically designed for the ultimate off-roader, an all new Jimmy based off the Sierra, featuring a 4-inch lift, SFA and a 5-link solid rear for versatility, and some other bits like full locking diffs and hubs. Sorry if the quality sucks.

    Maybe a rear suspension upgrade?... I'm not sure if leafsprings still cut it.

    It's got a 5-link in the back, which implies coil springs.

    Shouldn't a Jimmy be an SUV, or at least have a removable top?

    Touche, I should have read it more closely, I was just judging off the picture, I withdraw my comment.
